Vostro 3910 GPU and PSU

Hi, soon I will receive new Vostro 3910 (with standard PSU 180W).

  1. Before that I would like to order aditionally Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super, according to above information it should be only 7MKYT or I can use any other oem if it will fit inside? (original thread here)

  2. What about PSU in that case? I was reading that max. is 300W ; it will be enought?
    Can anyone tell me please correct product code for that psu?

Thank you in advance.

For question #1, you should probably stick with the suggested cards from Chris (in the other thread). With that said, other OEM cards that fit and are the same series/specs should work, but you would have to test them out first since this they did not originally ship with this system model.

For question #2 the PSU model number is: T7X04, and this is correct on the amount of watts that have been spec'd for the system.

Hi vanitas59. You've probably sorted yours by now (10 months later) but I thought I'd share my experience as it may help you and me both.

I bought a standard Vostro 3910 desktop a while back with 180w psu, 8gb ram and onboard Intel graphics, intending to upgrade in the future.

Well the future came and I started by trying to find the 300W psu T7X04. I spent months talking to Dell to no avail until one day a helpful Dell employee said he would help. 3 weeks later the psu arrived. Yay!

So, next I upgraded the ram, no probs.

Then I started searching the discreet graphics card, and I am hoping someone in the community will have some advice here. Having searched for 7MKYT Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super I could not find it (except it was a used item from US with huge postal cost and no doubt customs on top - I'm in UK). In one of my convos with Dell, I was told that other manufacturers cards would fit so I purchased an MSI version.

So here's the problem - the MSI card was way too big for the case; it was really tight to put in the slot and when the power plug was inserted there was no way to replace the cover. I've returned the card but am now wondering which other manufacturers' card might fit?

Any ideas folks, please? Anybody successfully installed another aftermarket GeForce GTX 1660 super?

I will also post this elsewhere here if that's allowed
